Melbourne, Australia

A large metropolis with more than 4.2 million citizens, Melbourne manages to bring the small-town feel, with locally owned vintage clothing shops and concept stores serving hot chocolate and socially conscious booze. The citizens of Australia’s second city are famous for being laidback and cool. They spend their free time on the re-purposed laneways, a bunch of narrow passages turned into spaces for cafés and art galleries. Ranging from 19th century classical styles, with glass arcades as roofs, to futuristic, newly built laneways, these spaces just make Melbourne even trendier, if that’s possible.

Undurraga

Tourists often choose Undurraga as their favorite winery to visit due to its small, family-owned feel. While other tours are often packed with guests, my tour of Undurraga felt more personalized. The tour itself lasts around 1.5 hours, which I thought was the perfect amount of time to see the grounds. As your explore the site with your English-speaking guides, you’ll learn the history behind both Viña Undurraga as well as Chilean wine in general. At the end of the tour, you’ll learn how to taste wine like a professional!

Warsaw, Poland

One of the coolest up-and-coming cities of Europe, Warsaw is not yet overly touristy, but its changing face makes it trendy among visitors and locals alike. The old town and the Royal Castle are the traditional image of the city, even if they were rebuilt after the WWII to reflect the actual old town. Other emerging areas are the milk bars, a staple in town, which, despite the name, don’t serve milk but traditional Polish food. They are remodeled from old Soviet sheds into hip contemporary eateries, popular among the young crowd. Celebrating its cultural heritage as the birthplace of Chopin, Warsaw is filled with benches which play the pianist’s music as people pass by. A mix of the old Soviet architecture and the futuristic vibe of restored places, and parks like the Hipster Square make up the contemporary vibe of the Polish capital.

The neighborhood is also famous for its nightlife, at which you can see rock, jazz, or pop performances. Get lost on the neon-lit backstreets to reach karaoke bars, the new craze in Seoul.
